Hi there! I’m a nontrad postbacc student that graduated with a 3.8 GPA in business at Georgia Tech. After a couple years working in the software industry, I finally decided to pull the trigger and go back to school to pursue what I’ve always wanted to do. I’m currently in classes at the community college here in Austin, Texas taking Bio 1, Chem 1, and Physics 1. This worked better for me financially than an official postbacc program, and enabled me to work as a PCT at the hospital downtown.
My question is this: What classes are mandatory and which are recommended? In my research, I’ve found medical schools require 8hrs of both Bio and Chem and 8hrs of Orgo (2 semesters). and SOME require 8hrs total of Physics. Some, additionally, require bio chem and genetics as mandatory classes. Which ones should I take? My tentative plan is to complete this spring semester of the entry level courses, take Chem 2 and Phys 2 in the summer, and in the fall take Orgo 1 and Bio 2 and maybe an elective? I’m not sure. All recs welcome!
Thanks in advance!!
